    Oh how I'm sad now. I had one of those, one of the best playing basses I have owned. That's another one I wish I could get back.

    We've all been their brother.

    To be honest my L2500 replaced one like below which I foolishly sold about 17 years ago. As much as I like that G&L I would take my old Modulus back in a NY minute should I ever find one like it again.

    Yeah I sometimes I miss my jazzes but not as much as I thought I would. Surprisingly.

    L-2000s are just that good.

    I would like to outfit a Jazz with two MFD's. Having just said that its probably a good time that I seek out a fresh pair of undershorts. I think I just experienced that turtle thing @fcleff mentioned earlier.:meh:

    In my part of the world the G&L brand is a rare find. I was lucky enough to find mine since it was the only one anywhere available in my city. I can never imagine what my bass playing life would be without it. I now have 4 perfectly gig worthy basses that just collect dust. My L-2500 is just that good:cool:

    That's pretty much what an L2000 is isn't it?
     
  12. There’s a grain of truth there.

    Legend has it, there's a super secret "G&L Smoked Meat Pole Chicken Head Club", coming to a cornfield near you...

    ... As Soon As Thanksgiving (ASAT). In addition to that mind blowing idea, contributions for a worthy cobs, can be made out to Kernel Klink, via Certified Check.

    Very nice. I had the same bass, just in blue-burst. Got it in a trade with every intention to flip it, but as soon as I played it, had to keep it. Eventually sold it but it was my main player for a while. Still kinda miss it!

    General Burkhalter is not amused.

    Thanks brother.

    I was tracking a couple of Blueburst models when mine showed up on Reverb. I hadn't seen many Tobacco Bursts with a maple board and it also came with a hardcase so I jumped on it quickly.

    After having played my PBass which has flats so often apparently my technique had gotten a little sloppy so as soon as I began playing the L2500 which has rounds I had fret clank like an old boiler about to blow. :bag: Nothing like a 5 string to remind you to get off your lazy arse. :bassist:

    Good self teaching moment. :laugh:

    In my understanding other than the tuners the only other major differences between a Tribute L Series and a US made are the bridge saddles and the preamp and both can be purchased from G&L for about $50 each.

    So my question is have any of you other Tribute L Series guys done any upgrades of those and if so was there any noticeable difference tonally?

    I'm also not counting specs, and finish selection which I know are much broader on a US made.
